Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler published his new autobiography Does the Noise In My Head Bother You? yesterday (May 18) - and it contains plenty of new revelations about the frontman's colourful past.

Most startling among the revelations, first picked up on by ABC News, was Tyler's admission that he'd tried gay sex, but just the once as he "didn't dig it."

He wrote: "Gay sex just doesn't do it for me. I tried it one time when I was younger, but I just didn't dig it."



Tyler also wrote about the band's backstage antics and how one of Aerosmith's entourage would make sure he had "clean girls" waiting for him in the shower after gigs.

He wrote: "As dirty as my mind is, my body's pretty clean. Kelly [a member of the Aerosmith entourage] always made sure the girls were in the shower when I got in the room. I liked my pulchritude pristine! I can't kiss a girl that's been stage diving with 500 other guys."

The singer also opened up about being bullied as a child and his turbulent personal life, writing: "I've never had a relationship with a woman who really trusted me."
